I definitely wouldn't. What's your reasoning? To get Harvin? He's nice and all, but you can probably trade one of your back ups (bush?) for him straight up. Don't downgrade from Blount to FJax, it's usually not a good idea to trade away your best player unless your team is completely devoid of talent. Luckily, you drafted some good depth, you can trade some of your back ups or lesser starters for a WR if you really feel you need one.

This really seems like a trade just to trade. The drop off from Blount to Jackson will be about the same as the upgrade from Ocho to Harvin. Honestly, I wouldn't do it.

Having 3 feature-type backs in a league where you can start 3 RBs seems like an advantage. It's easy to get a flashy receiver at that "Flex-type" spot but it's so often boom or bust. Your 3 backs should get plenty of carries and looks in the red-zone.

I like C.J. Spiller, and the Bills seem to, too; having drafted him so high. I think he'll start eating into FJax's carries sooner or later.

I'm pretty high on Harvin right now, but unless this is a PPR league I don't see it working out very well. Blount has been a beast for a while now(if you include his time at Oregon). I personally think it'll be tough to turn your depth into a 2nd WR. Luckily I think your HBs will get around 26 TDs this year and it shouldn't be a huge issue. Look for a FA wideout early in the season and hope your ground attack can carry you to that point. Your team looks strong, so I wouldn't be too concerned.

Also keep in mind that trading Blount for Harvin and FJax may be a huge coup for this guy. I targeted Blount pretty heavily this year, if you're willing to trade him I'm sure you can find a better offer.
